Welcome to YOUR Library
The Cosumnes Oaks High School and Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School Library is a joint library that serves students from seventh to twelfth grade.

to engage students in a life-long love of reading
to teach the information literacy skills of finding, evaluating and using a variety of resources, and citing them properly
to provide print and non-print resources that support the school curricula
to partner with teachers, school staff and parents to meet the educational needs of the students of Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School
